Jason & Elena | Bakersfield Wedding Photographers

Jason & Elena were married October 11th 2014 at Our Lady of Guadalupe followed by a beautiful reception at JC’s Place Venue in Downtown Bakersfield.

We met these two in February last year for their consultation and quickly fell in love with their playful personalities ♥ Something I’ll never forget is how they warned us of their awkwardness in front of the camera while we scheduled their engagement session. Which sent me into planning mode, how to break the ice ideas, how to make things easy etc… except it everything I planned went out the window because they’re so easy to talk to and laugh with. The same feeling flowed right through to their wedding day. Surrounded by the love of their family and friends, they joined together into forever after ♥

Jason & Elena, we wish many years of love and laughter, and maybe even a little awkwardness in your marriage ;) Thank you for inviting us to share your day with you!

Wild Mountain Rose | Bakersfield Photographer – Jess Cadena

“The hills were alive with wildflowers
And I was as wild, even wilder than they
For at least I could run, they just died in the sun
And I refused to just wither in place”
– Dolly Parton

Johnston Maternity Session | Bakersfield Photographer

Oh The Johnston’s ♥ They’re pretty amazing people and I love them even more every time I see them. They’re welcoming a baby boy to their family this month, and I’m pretty sure he’s going to be amazing. Especially if he’s anything like his big brother Jasper.

Fugate Wedding | Santa Barbara CA Fess Parker Hotel

Lina & Brady were married on August 24th in beautiful Santa Barbara at the Fess Parker Hotel. We had a wonderful time photographing two people in love on a gorgeous, warm day full of excitement & emotion.

David and I met Lina & Brady through the Bakersfield photography community about 3 years ago (whoa, doesn’t even feel so long ago!), and I specifically remember a night after David wrapped up a session with them. He came home, unpacked his gear and said something like “those two, they’ll be married. They’re so good together.” It’s likely they knew that at that point already, it’s pretty amazing to have a love so beautiful that the world around you feels it too.

Lina & Brady, we loved every moment of your wedding day! Looking back at how much love you were surrounded by, everyone was so full of love and happiness for the both of you. Your families, your friends. Photographers condition themselves to wait for these moments, when love is shared, memories are made. It was endless love the entire day. We are so happy for the two of you!

I’m so excited to share just a small bit of their wedding day with you ♥

Baby girl Lily | Newborn Photographer Bakersfield

Sweet Lily, you are a dream baby. You slept like a champion, curled perfectly into each pose and goodness those smiles! You’re also currently the record holder for least amount of soiled blankets during a newborn session, which was zero. Pretty unheard of, but my laundry pile thanks you for that ;)
